Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

FBX Export Ignores LOD Flag

Build type: Binary

Build version: 4.18.2-3794801+++UE4+Release-4.18

Description: When exporting static meshes from the editor as FBX the exporter ignores the "Level of Detail" option and creates a LOD group in the fbx.

Repro steps:

  1. Select an actor in your level that contains lods

  2. File > Export Selected

  3. Untick the Level of Detail flag

  4. Import the exported FBX file into Maya

  5. Observe how the fbx contains a LOD group anyway

Simply select each of the LOD's and un-parent them. You'll find that they are all there.
